Cameron Highlands: Family Outing

Beautiful "Boh" tea plantation.

I would like to end this year posting with my Cameron Highlands family outing. It was a happy event, a family gathering and lot of new experiences. I've been to Cameron Highlands for a few times but this was the first time visiting the tea plantation and hand-on plucking the strawberries...and home-stay in a farm. It was refreshing to wake up and saw the fresh vegetables just outside your room.

"Boh" tea plantation is sitting deep inside the mountain, we have to drive for 15 mins from the main road to reach the tea plantation. It was a very narrow one lane road, when faced with the opposites cars, either one side have to stop and give way. Initially, we thought we had lost the way, but the road ended with this beautiful eyes catching greenery.

There is a restaurant protruding from the edge of the hill overseeing the tea plantation, my heart dances because my soul breathe the fresh air which is full of life. 

My brother introduced us to this simple cafe: The Lord Cafe at Tanah Rata. I love its ambience, urban simple setting, food is cheap and good too. It was like having high-tea at a friend place, warm and cosy.

A good harvest of red strawberries, no doubt it was not big strawberries but was a good experience for my son. He enjoyed the plucking process very much. He didn't put the freshly plucked strawberry straight into his mouth, I think he learned it from the Agent OSO cartoon :) He went for second round of strawberries plucking with his father in a farm which not cater for tourists, they brought back really big and sweet strawberries.

All sort of cactuses
